WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - The clock is ticking for Delaware residents who want to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. 

With the open enrollment period for Delaware's health insurance exchange expiring at midnight Monday, officials are urging those who have not yet signed up to do so.

Health and Social Services officials said there were 18 locations around the state where residents could get help enrolling in the exchange. St. Francis Hospital in Wilmington was offering help right up to the midnight deadline.

Delawareans can also enroll on their own by going online to www.HealthCare.gov.

State officials say those who create an online account by the Monday midnight deadline but do not complete the enrollment process will have until mid-April to do so.
